Storyline

Love him or hate him, there is no denying that George Steinbrenner has been one of the most colorful and successful owners in contemporary sports. Heading up a group that bought the New York Yankees in 1973 for $10 million, "King George" emphatically branded the world's most celebrated sports franchise as his own. The Boss has boasted 10 pennants, 6 World Series trophies and a corporate net worth more than $1 billion. But for all the glory and riches, the Steinbrenner legacy is also mixed with wasteful and embarrassing spending and countless episodes of tabloid-style soap. Now with George's health seriously failing, the Steinbrenner heirs are finally beginning to emerge from their father's larger-than-life shadow as they collectively move his franchise into a new home and a new era.

Nice Look at Yankee Stadium

30 for 30: The House of Steinbrenner (2010)

*** (out of 4)

Nice documentary covering George Streinbreener and the final year of Yankee Stadium before the team moved across the street. This documentary gives you a quick rundown of George buying the team for $10 million and eventually turning them into a billion dollar property. Along the way he made many enemies and at one point was considered the most hated man in baseball. The documentary covers quite a wide range of topics but there's no question is that one goal was to show the "King George" did a lot of great things that he never got credit for. I think the most memorable moments of this documentary come with the various fans being interviewed and sharing their memories of the old stadium. They could have called this movie THE HOUSE OF TEARS because it's rather amazing to see how many of the people got choked up reliving their memories of the stadium. A lot of the stories deal with sons who remember their fathers taking them to the game and it's stories like this that really makes this documentary worth viewing. The film also does a nice job at showing us what was going on at the old stadium as they were taking it down. I really enjoyed all the behind-the-scenes footage of everything being removed from the stadium and there's a rather funny sequence of them packing up the pitching mound. Countless current and former Yankees are interviewed and we even get some media guys who aren't that happy with the new stadium. We are there for the opening day game where many fans are in love with the stadium while many others fear it is for rich people and the tickets are being taken away from the common fan.
